We spent this morning browsing new goods at the Paul & Williams showroom, from waxed-cotton overcoats to the nautical-styled Sunspel goods above. It’ll all be hitting stores in the fall, but since there’s too much menswear here to fit above the fold, we’re tackling it piece by piece after the jump.
In the editorial world, we like to talk about trends, but some things just work. They’ve worked for decades and they’ll work for decades to come, long after the double monks of the world have come and gone. Our favorite example: the divine convergence between navy blue and khaki, the two poles of gentlemanly spring style.
The designer is Greg Chapman, the same outerwear savant behind Schott’s Perfecto Brand, so he knows his way around a jacket. But unlike the biker jackets of yore, this is all 19th-century military flourish. (Check out the brass buttons and regimental pockets, for example.) And just like those white jeans, it’s Cone denim that will build up an interesting wear even without the help of indigo.
